There are two ways your ruler uses to control: Love or Fear
In the traditional view of masculine/feminine roles love was the mom’s job and fear was the dad’s.
We hear a lot of talk these days about ‘toxic masculinity’ and very little about ‘toxic femininity’. Why might this be?
“Boys are made of snips and snails and puppy dog tails; Girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice.” popular British nursery rhyme
In the 1960s the British Invasion was strategic cultural warfare “Her” way. But this ‘soft kill’ strategy goes way back and I seriously doubt it was the British who invented it.
It’s not out-right battle with bloodshed and causalities, resulting in clear enemies and much visible damage that then must be repaired at considerable expense.
Her–way warfare is done undercover, using mind weapons like manipulation, plausible deniability, gaslighting, strategic defense. It prefers enticement rather than open hostility, seduction rather than force. It is the land of triangulation, conspiracy, witchcraft, word salads, cryptic codes and cunning smiles.
This is how most war and conflict works today, this is why it’s relevant and why I care about it.
Feminine vs. masculine tactics can be defined as simply covert vs. overt. As the famous JFK quote goes: “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.”
He was speaking about Communism, a perfect example of a feminine worldview.

“If you want to beat your enemy just raise their children.” Chinese proverb
Michael Tsarion “The rise of Feminism is, as said, directly caused by this scenario. The devoured daughter must hide her pain, misery and hatred from herself. The truth about her envious, possessive, schizoid mother must be rationalized. So, to compensate for legitimate feelings of repulsion, a daughter entrains herself to see no evil in anything females think, do or create. It’s all good, and whatever evil there is comes from men. Most feminized women hold onto this fiction for dear life, and will not willingly relinquish it. There’s too much to lose by so doing. Living in the ashes as a half-self is better than facing the icy reproaches of a terrible mother.”
Weaponized protection. Mother’s gone, cannot protect juvenile as intended by nature. State takes over her job. It takes over the job to the tune of child/student as $$ and cares so very much about your child’s welfare they eventually install metal detectors and armed guards. Perfect!
Break down the family unit, starting at home.
Turn the home into a battleground and call it Liberation, Baby!
Did it work? If all this social engineering pushing a new feminine value system was meant for the good of the culture, the health of the family, the flourishing of the individual, then, it seems we would know them by their fruits.
I’m thinking that was/is not their intention at all.
